more things go wrong in saltwater though. it's already doing a number on my tools. the salty air is rusting them fast. props wear out faster, heavy surf beats up the hull, and if i'm not vigilante about the regular daily maintenance, the engine will go downhill quick. has to be flushed and sprayed down after every use, etc. (that sounds dirty)
Wow, that looks like another full time job lol
If it were me, I wouldn't be able to manage the extra stress.
